When you get right down to it, there’s only so much you can do on a trampoline, especially if acrobatics aren’t for you.
If you’re looking for a little extra fun and don’t want to compromise on quality in order to get it, you’ll be glad to know that the Jump and Dunk was designed especially for spring-loaded ball games.
This means that you’ll probably have to get out of the netted structure time and again to retrieve runaway balls. The safety net will stop some balls from getting away, but it’s not high enough when a springy ball bounces on a moving surface.
Thankfully, the basketball net’s opening will only support a small ball, not the typical NBA-sized ball. We recommend using soft balls only, both to avoid injuries and to prevent them from flying out every few seconds.
Beating the Competition
In simple terms, it came down to customer experience. The Merax just isn’t as popular among its users as this Skywalker. This trampoline is not only enjoyed more, it’s also more popular as far as simple sales numbers go.
This popularity might simply be because of the general reputation of the Skywalker brand. Although Merax is a well-known company as well, they just haven’t made quite as much of a name for themselves in the trampoline world as Skywalker has.
It should also be said that Skywalker focuses exclusively on trampolines, while Merax are generalists.
Even More Fun Available
This trampoline comes with a basketball net as standard, but you can also purchase additional accessories to create more, equally energetic games.
